a VarHandle is a glorified integer value that correspond to the number of bytes from a pointer to a field address,
so you give it a reference and you have access to the field at the address: reference + shift, given that the shift value is the same for all the instances of the same class,
it should be declared static (and final so it's a constant for the VM).
